COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
True to its origins, our reproduction of the classic Vienna Lager style is rich in toasted malt flavour and balanced with clean hop bitterness and a subtle hop bouquet. A sophisticated Lager for those who demand more.

(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, amber golden with a bubbly, dense, off-white head. Sweetish, floral aroma. Medium body, light notes of caramel and roasted malt before a fairly hoppy finish with a citrusy touch. 040208

DuffMan (6153) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2009
Bottle. Clear toffee amber, medium off-white head. Initial aroma made me think of toast with maple spread. Nice toast & toffee flavour, medium bodied, nicely hopped finish of medium bitterness. Tasty, and a nice take on the style (even if they don’t use Munich malt).

mkel07 (2520) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2010
500ml bottle. Rich golden orange colour, sunset in a glass with a solid level dirty white head and strong caramel malt aromas that beckon and invite you in. Well balanced malty flavour that hits all parts of the mouth. Robust and moresish . A good effort.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle, poured a dark copper with a large foamy light brown head. Sweet caramal malt aroma, a little oaky. A very sweet palate, the toasted malt exhibiting both caramal and nutty flavours. The hops increase in the finish, with a little bit of spice and bitterness. A pretty well put together Vienna Lager.

I’ve had this beer a couple of times before, but never rated it. I’m sorry. This is me trying to be a better person. I’ve always enjoyed that particular authentic marmitey Germanic yeast aroma that gives warm buttered toast and tangerine citrus. It’s intriguing and an aoma I would be quite happy to have as the last thing I ever smell. The colour is a gorgeous amber that lets off a rocky, fluffy white head. The fist flavours are al mandarin, tangerine and pink grapefruit and then soter tones of fresh bread and roasted hazelnuts. For all intents, this is quite a simple beer, but of a style that you don’t see terribly much of here in New Zealand. A thoroughly enjoyable drop made more enjoyable by its rarity.

Orange in colour with small white head, mild hop aroma. has big malt flavour that leaves no bitter mouthfeel. Pretty safe beer nothing outstanding.
